Toby Mitchell was charged with allegedly threatening to kill a man as well as his infant daughter. The former Bandidos bikie enforcer allegedly demanded $300,000 otherwise.

Mitchell was arrested by Victoria Police's anti-bikies taskforce detectives before midnight on Saturday. The 40-year-old was taken in custody from his Docklands apartment on Harbour Esplanade. Mitchell threatened the man that he would shoot him and his daughter dead if he wasn't given the money. Thereafter, he carried out an assault outside City of Ink in Clarendon Street, South Melbourne. Echo Taskforce detectives searched Mitchell's tattoo shop which had opened around a month back. He was charged with 17 offences which included recklessly and intentionally causing injury, extortion with threats to kill and possessing a gun and a belt which had a built-in double-edged dagger.

Mitchell apparently had some ink of his own done at the shop. It was only hours before the alleged altercation. It is, however, unclear if the altercation is related to City of Ink. Mitchell posted a video on his Instagram profile on Friday of a tattoo artist removing the name of a former girlfriend from his groin area. The tattoo shop was normally operating on Sunday. According to the workers at nearby businesses, the alleged incident was not seen by anyone. "Cover up KIDS don't make the same mistake as I did and get your ex's name above your d***as the new girls don't seem 2 b a fan," The Age quotes Mitchell.

Heavily tattooed Mitchell appeared in Melbourne Magistrates Court. He, who survived two shootings, gave a thumbs-up to two associates during a brief hearing. His lawyer Theo Magazis said that his client had just one kidney which functioned at "30 percent." While he did not request bail for his client, he mentioned that Mitchell had special dietary requirements. Magazis said outside the court that he would apply for bail at the next hearing. According to The Australian, Magistrate Ross Betts asked Mitchell to be remanded in custody until a hearing on Wednesday as he called for a medical examination. Betts also asked to remove the names of the alleged victims from the charge sheet before those could be released to media.
